At 75, Bettie Adams seems old enough to know better. Old enough not to be sitting in a lawn chair across The Avenue of Champions from Memorial Coliseum all night Monday and all day Tuesday.
She and about 100 other hearty Kentucky fans were in place Tuesday and ready to stay there overnight in order to get into position to charge across the street at about 5 a.m. Wednesday.
This seemingly puts the madness in Big Blue Madness. Tents can be pitched Wednesday morning for the distribution of free tickets on Saturday morning.
One question: Why?
Never miss a local story.
See what Adams and her daughter had to say on Jerry Tipton's UK basketball blog.
